Ofsted Report

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.

They inspect services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. They also inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people.

Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students. Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online.

Ofsted report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial.

St Edward’s Catholic Academy received its first inspection as an academy on 24th and 25th September 2019.

We were delighted to be graded as ‘GOOD’ with each individual area being rated as ‘GOOD’. This is a huge achievement and recognition of how far the school has come and the hard work of everyone involved.

St Edward’s were one of the first schools in the country to be inspected under the new Inspection Framework which came into place on 2nd September 2019. The children fully embraced this opportunity to demonstrate everything that St Edward’s offers and it goes without saying that we are very proud of all of them.

The Inspection took account all of the following areas:

  • The Quality of Education
  • Behaviour and Attitudes
  • Personal Development
  • Leadership and Management
  • Early Years

The full report is available below.

This recognition from Ofsted is very much deserved and marks an exciting time for St Edward’s. Our expectations remain high as we look forward to further achievements and successes.
